Of course, one could always go for the smaller iPhone XS, but even so, you'll be hitting S$1,649 onwards.

The first in line is Mr Le Than from Vietnam and he had started queuing since 6AM.

So when can you get this new iPhone?

Apple defines the iPhone XR display technology as "Liquid Retina", but a phone with a ppi of 326 won't look very nice. iPhone XR is not a budget device coming in at 750$ United States, you are better off buying the iPhone XS or the iPhone X if you absolutely want a Apple smartphone.

The new phone, which is expected to fetch €1,179 (or €1,279 for the Max version), will launch in stores on September 21. With both having a new 512GB storage capacity - also the largest on an iPhone - and the latter the biggest in the series so far, prices were also hiked. Well, at least you can have Deliveroo bring in your orders to your spot in line. The Xs Max features the biggest display in the iPhone sphere with a 6.5-inch screen.

The listings also revealed the offers that will be available on purchase of the phone.

This is the fastest and most efficient processor the United States technology firm has ever created and is also much more efficient meaning longer battery life. However, there is plenty of other information that only a teardown video can reveal, and now a Dutch YouTuber Fixjeiphone NL has managed to upload one of the first ones for the iPhone XS. That's because Apple has used more dust and waterproofing seals, in order to better protect the iPhone Xs. Apple CEO Tim Cook defended the exorbitant pricing of the new phones across the world on ABC's Good Morning America.

Aggregated global data from Google was pulled "to visualise the difference between this and last year's iPhone releases", BankMyCell's Richard Morris said.

The entry-level smartphone comes in capacities of 64GB, 128GB and 256GB, and is priced at Dh3,179, Dh3,389 and Dh3,809, respectively.

The iPhone XR offers an all-screen design that looks very similar to the flagship XS. This time though, Apple has combined the two batteries to make one single L-shaped unit.
